Volunteers and donors are needed to ‘Raise the Roof’ on Housatonic Habitat for Humanity’s new home in New Milford. The project, led by Team Executive Kent Rohrer and Project Manager Todd Dietzman, started with the pouring of the foundation last fall and is expected to be completed this summer. Prospective homeowners Matt and Keri Anne have begun working their required sweat equity hours and are meeting with their Family Partnership volunteer mentor, Danette Bottlelsen of Blue Buffalo, to prepare for the financial challenges of home-ownership.
Housatonic Habitat for Humanity focuses on making a meaningful difference in the lives of qualified working families by promoting financial stability and self-sufficiency through ownership of affordable homes. By providing decent, affordable, safe housing to qualified regional families, Housatonic Habitat contributes to community revitalization in the greater Danbury region by creating homes that can transform a street and neighborhood and add value to the community.
